Lancaster Mennonite School – Rutt Academic Center, Lancaster, PA
Award Winner: Green Award of Excellence, Associated Builders & Contractors – Keystone Chapter; Merit Award for K-12, Mid-Atlantic Construction Magazine Best of 2009 Awards
Cornerstone Design Architects ensured that this new academic building is both functional and dramatic. Built by High Construction for approximately $8.5 million, this 38,000 SF, two-story building serves as the new gateway to the LMS campus. Greenebaum Structures provided structural engineering design and analysis for this exceptional project.
Lebanon High School
Greenebaum Structures, P.C., used REVIT software to coordinate structural engineering design for Lebanon High School’s $38 million renovation.
REVIT creates a 3-D digital model shared at all stages by architects and engineers. Design changes made during the process are automatically updated throughout the entire model, immediately alerting designers to conflicts.
The project, begun in 2008, challenged designers to connect three existing drum-shaped buildings at different elevations to add 80,000 square feet to the original 200,000 square feet. A striking feature of the new design is a central atrium highlighted by a triangular translucent skylight 2.5 stories overhead.
“I think it’s going to be a very exciting space,” said Ed Greenebaum, president of Greenebaum Structures, P.C. “The superintendent, staff, and students seem very happy with the completed parts of the project.”
Aside from design challenges, updating the 1969 school was a scheduling feat. School has been in session during much of the phased renovations. Architecture services are provided by Beers & Hoffman, Ltd. and Shonk, Schwear & Associates.
Harding Elementary School, Lebanon City School District, Lebanon, PA
Beers & Hoffman, Ltd. partnered with Greenebaum Structures for the renovation of four Lebanon City School District elementary schools. Harding is a four-story, 104,000 SF, masonry building that was completely renovated to 21st century standards. Our portion of this $7.9 million project included capturing underutilized space by framing new doors, leveling sloping auditorium floors, supporting bearing walls to create clearer spaces, and supporting new rooftop mechanical units. General construction was performed by Lobar, Inc. Feedback from parents, children, and administration was extremely positive.
